New York Islanders fans may switch the brand of coffee they drink after Dunkin Donuts gave out Rangers themed coffee cups.

Fans are passionate, loud, superstitious and sometimes a tad bit over the top. Although the New York Islanders fans reaction to Dunkin Donuts giving out cups with the New York Rangers logo on them was perfect.

On the side of America’s favorite coffee cups, it reads “Brewed For This” with the logo of the other New York hockey team on it.

Since naturally New Yorkers love coffee and love to hate their teams rivals the response to this branding was peak hockey fan.

Isles Twitter is the best. If you’ve ever read one of my blogs you probably know my feelings on twitter. It’s the best website ever created (eyesonisles.com is a close second) because it’s free entertaining mayhem.

But how Islanders fans live and die with every game makes Isles Twitter the most entertaining of all the sports teams in the area. As a proud member of Jets and Mets Twitter, I can tell you that they don’t hold a candle to Isles Twitter so give yourselves a pat on the back for that one.

Just this past week Isles Twitter tracked the Islanders plane because of the possibility of a trade being announced.

As for the issue on hand, I think the only logical thing to do is to switch to Starbucks until Dunkin Donuts stops this tomfoolery. #TeamStarbucks
